I need a neck

About all I can tell you is GOOD LUCK! I've been trying to find a neck to fit my King Zypher bari for five years. But maybe if you post some measurements as to tenon size, etc someone will be able to help you. Personally, I've never heard of that brand of sax but I bet someone on here has. Just don't get your hopes up.:?

Just an afterthought but I think you'd do better posting this is "Parts Wanted/ for Sale."

i would be happy with any neck, tenor or alto or baritone to fix up, one that needs recorking and thoroughly cleaning etc but with no extreme dents

Only a tenor would do the job, an alto or bari would be too short. Imagine what would happen if you forced your mouthpiece right on to the cork, then multiply the effect.

Dude, in your original post you just asked for a replacement neck for a tenor. We're not mind readers ...

Plus, if it's just for practising techniques, surely it doesn't matter if it's beaten up?

Hi Dan, I don't have any rough old necks that will fit a Tenor but I have some newer necks that are in various states. I've been working on and re-working a bunch of Alto, Tenor and Baritone necks lately in an effort to learn more about them. So I have a number of necks around the shop. I may have something that will fit your Tenor. If you have a caliper to measure the receiver, I can size it for you based on your measurements. That said, I have never worked on a Rene Guenot and have no idea what the original taper is for this neck. But, I bet I can get you something that physically works on it.

Drop me an Email [email protected] if you like.

What configuration is your sax in? Is it a Selmer copy? Does it have the older brass wire octave key? Does it have a Conn-type underslung octave key? Whats the tenon outside diameter (.xxx")? Chances are there are many necks that could fit, but we need to know what we're talking about.
